Forum: etree Subject: Getting song times to align vertically on the page

I create my Info Text file.txt and upload it. I also copy and paste it into the Description Box in the Uploader so it will show up on the page. I use the button in the Description box to make certain text bold. Works well.

But what is the secret for being able to get the all the times of the songs to line up vertically so they look good on the page? I did some searching and looked at the uploading tips section but didn't see any info on it.

They are aligned just fine in my Info Text.txt file, but seldom end up aligned when displayed on the page.

I've even taken the time to try aligning them in the Description box, but still, once displayed on the page, they don't align vertically.

Is it the font that is used in the Description section? If so, what font and size should I use for my Info Text.txt file so it works correctly?

Like this:

Song Title 1 5:35
Longer Song Title 2 4:25

THANKS! If this has indeed been covered before, please point me to the solution.

Ross

Getting tab spaces in HTML is not necessarily a simple task, but can be accomplished without a great deal of difficulty. I suggest you do a google search to find the technique that will work for you.

I found out on subsequent uploads that the trick is to look at the Description page once it elongates, like when you move on to fill out other data fields. Then you can see where the alignment of song times are and whether you need to adjust them (even though they may look fine if you expand the Description page full size). It seems that elongated preview is what actually gets posted to the archive page. Thanks. At least I know how to get them to align properly now.
